INTERNAL USE

 

Serving suggestions: 1 standard serve = 5 grams (approximately 1 heaped teaspoon)

Instant Clay Drink: Add 1 heaped teaspoon to a glass of water or juice. Lightly stir and it is ready to drink.

Premixed Clay Concentrate: Mix 1 part clay to 10 parts water. eg.100g of clay to 1 litre of water. 1 serve = 50 ml. Shake well before use. Dilute with water or juice as required.

Edible Paste: 1 part clay to 2 parts water. eg 20g clay to 40ml water. For best results let it hydrate for a couple of hours, the longer the better. No mixing is necessary,  just let it sit. Any excess water can be poured off.

Tip: Sprinkle the clay into the water gradually. Not the water to the clay. When making a large amount sprinkle it in layers ie. water first then clay then water etc. It will hydrate more evenly.

Store the hydrated clay in a sealed container of food grade plastic or glass. No refrigeration is necessary.

 

TOPICAL USE OF BENTONITE CLAY

CLAY BATH

PREPARING A CLAY BATH

Preparing a  clay bath is a simple procedure that only takes a few minutes. This particular Bentontie clay readily mixes into a smooth milk like solution and no pre-mixing is necessary.  The clay can be added directly to the water while the bath is running. Sprinkling the clay over the surface of the water will quickly produce an even clay bath that is ready for use in a matter of minutes.

How much to use?

Generally speaking 1 – 2 cups of clay is used for cleansing baths but more can be used if preferred.

Duration: 15 to 30 minutes or as desired.

CLAY FOOTBATH

A regular footbath is a great way to relax and unwind after a long day and it only takes a few minutes to prepare. Not to be underestimated, a footbath can be a very effective alternative to having full clay bath and one that can be enjoyed while watching your favourite television show or reading a book.

Mixing Ratio : Mix 1 part clay to 2.5 parts of water. eg. add 100g (4 heaped dessertspoons) of clay to 250ml of water.

For large amounts alternately layering the clay and water will ensure a more even hydration. Start with water then clay then water etc.

APPLYING THE CLAY PACK

  1. Spread directly onto the area to be treated or onto gauze/cloth and then apply.
  2. Lightly bandage to keep in place. An elastic bandage is ideal. The thicker you apply it the stronger it will be. Some applications may require 10mm thick and others only 5mm.
  3. Leave the clay on for approximately 20 to 60 minutes. A poultice can be kept on for a number of hours or over night if so desired.

Repeat as required. If the clay drys out it will become inactive and thus loses its effectiveness. If a longer application is required, it can be sprayed with a fine mist of water to keep it in a moist & active condition.
